: : Does anyone know the title and author of a poem recited by Alfalfa in the Little Rascals/Our Gang films? It begins with him in school (in Miss Crabapple's class, of course) reciting, in an exaggerated way, 'I saw a lit-tle daff-o-dil...'in school. Is it odd that this should pop into my head on Easter morning? Thanks again.
: You're not alone. Several people are trying to find this poem. One inquiry said a line from it was "and I skinned my little shin."
I don't know the poem, but I must point out that the teacher in the Little Rascals/Our Gang movies was "Miss Crabtree". The name "Mrs. Crabapple" (accent on the 2nd syllable) is the name of Bart Simpson's teacher.
